  • The Dutch State Secretary of Finance and his Netherlands Antilles colleague have come to an agreement regarding a reduction of the current 8.3 percent withholding tax rate levied on dividend distributions to qualifying Netherlands Antilles shareholders. Such dividends will only be subject to a withholding tax of 5 percent, and in some cases even 0 percent.
